Williamsburg Bridge, New York City

4.4
The Williamsburg Bridge is a suspension bridge in New York City across the East River connecting the Lower East Side of Manhattan at Delancey Street with the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn at Broadway near the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (Interstate 278). Completed in 1903, it was the longest suspension bridge span in the world until 1924.

The bridge is one of four toll-free vehicular bridges connecting Manhattan Island and Long Island. The others are the Queensboro Bridge to the north, and the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges to the south. The Williamsburg Bridge once carried New York State Route 27A and was planned to carry Interstate 78, though the planned I-78 designation was aborted by the cancellation of the Lower Manhattan Expressway and Bushwick Expressway.

  • Love this bridge...its a great marker for the members of my family and myself when we run along the East River in preparation for some race, or other! Beautiful spot to stop, take in the sights of way downtown, NYC, get back on your running shoes and. Blast off!!!!!
  • Great bridge to walk across from Manhattan to Brooklyn. It’s not as busy as Brooklyn Bridge but at the same time is not as beautiful either. However, it’s nice that it is not as crowded and you can truly enjoy the walk. The walking area is wide and is split from the bicycle path which makes it more comfortable to walk without looking out for bicycles.
